shore power
If turned on, the LEDs next to the switch are shining
and indicate that the circuit is powered with 12 / 220
- The small green LED for shore power always
needs to be checked when connected to the
jetty. If you are plugged in shore power and
the LED is not shining, the batteries are NOT
being charged and you have to check the
main fuse.
- Water heater is only working when connected
to the shore power. If not used you always
have to turn off the heater to prevent
damage to the electronics.
- All boats are equipped with a power inverter
which is usually located behind the panel or
under the chart table. If used the inverter
draws electricity from the service batteries
even if there is no electronic devices
connected. If not needed the inverter has to
be switched off in order to prevent service
batteries from getting empty.
- Voltage indicator: always make sure the
voltage does not drop below 12V
Attention! If devices are not being used always turn
off the panel switch too!
(e.g. running the bilge pump continuously, the pump
mechanism runs hot and breaks down)
1.1 Panel
While doing the check in we will
give you the basic explanations
(main important functions) of the
instruments. Panel switches are
clearly labeled.
1.3 windlass fuse
In order to use the automatic windlass you
need to switch on the fuse behind the panel.
If the load is too high for the windlass the
fuse can pop out. In this case you need to
turn it on again and proceed with the
nverter / main
The Main battery switch is located in the port
stern cabin.
The main battery switch turns the complete boat
electrics on or off. If turned off, it will not be
possible to start the engine. Basically the switch is
only operated in emergencies. (e.g. fire)
Inverter on-/off- switch is located on the panel.
Please note: Only use 220V – devices when
needed and switch off the inverter afterwards.
2.1 fuel emergency valve
It is located in the starboard aft cabin, in the berth.
Only operate in case of emergency (e.g. fire)
2.2 gas valve inside
There are two valves which regulate the gas flow.
One is directly at the bottles (outside) and one is
located near the oven. If the oven is not being used
always make sure you have turned off the gas valve.
If gas switch is along the pipe = open
If gas switch is crosswise the pipe = closed
3.1 toilets
WC: By pumping slowly but steadily, the water intake or
exhaust is regulated.
Meaning of the lever key position (behind the pump
Lever key to the right: opening the hose, pumping out the
water (keep this position when not using the toilet pump,
to prevent the backward movement of water) The
seacock must be opened during this procedure!
Lever key to the left: sucks in the water while pumping.
Attention! If you haven’t eaten or drunken it, it should
not go down the toilet! NO toilet paper, sanitary napkins,
kitchen waste etc. Please use appropriate trash can with
plastic bag. Dispose of it on land only.
3.2 seacocks
The sea cocks for the galley are located under
the sink in the saloon. The sea cocks for the
toilets are located under the sink in the toilet.
All sea cocks are labelled and show positioning
for open/closed.
Handle of the valve is in the direction of the
hose opened
Handle of the valve is 90° to the hose closed
Attention! If sea cocks are closed the toilet
pump is not working
If not used always keep closed.
2.3 gas valve outside
By turning the switch you can open or close the gas
valve. Always keep the valve closed if kitchen is not
All boats are equipped with 2 gas bottles. If you need
to change gas bottles make sure to place the thread
4.1 Engine room
The Phoenix Team services the engines of all
boats on a regular basis. In order to provide a
safe and fail free use we recommend you do a
short visual check every day before you start
your trip.
Clients can check the oil & water as well as the
fan of the engine by themselves.
The locations of the main things which can be
inspected are shown during the Check In at the
Every boat is equipped with necessary spare
parts (oil filter, water filter, fan belt, etc.).
In case of an emergency we recommend to call
the base of origin (Marmaris, Fethiye, and
3.3 waste water tank
All toilets are equipped with a waste water tank.
The valve is located under the sink.
The tank is located above the water line. Due to gravity the
inside is flushed out if the valve is opened. When main
valve is closed the pumped waste water will stay in the
tank. When valve opened again the tank will empty by
fresh water valves
It is located under the berth in the port stern cabin.
When starting the boat trip you have to make sure that one
tank is closed and one is opened. If one tank is empty, stop
immediately all water taps (Danger of air intrusion in the
water pumps) and switch on the 2
tank. Close the first one.
If the tank is empty you must turn off the fresh water pump.
As soon as you have switched the tanks you can turn on the
pump again. The pump will take about 1 min in order to
build up enough pressure in the hose again.
4.2 engine Start
1.) place throttle bar into neutral gear position by
pushing the button on the bar inside (Note: the button
will stay inside as long as the gear is in neutral position).
1.1 now you have to push the throttle bar forward (still
in neutral gear position = Button pushed inside)
2.) push the “power” button in the upper left corner to
start the ignition
3.) after 10 sec. an acoustic signal indicates that the
engine is ready
Push the “Start” button on the upper right corner
Engine Stop:
1. push and hold the lower right button to stop the
2. push the “start” button on the upper right again
to turn off the ignition
NOTE: if the ignition is not turned off the
batteries will be worn down! You can control the
on/off status by checking the display on the
engine panel
You must never speed up the boat over 2300 RPM
When shifting from
forward to reverse leave the throttle a
few seconds in neutral position so that
the gear shift doesn´t break!
When catching a rope or something
similar in the
propeller, immediately switching to
neutral and stop the engine. Dive
overboard and free the rope!
5.1 outside Instruments
The basic functions of the chart plotter,
autopilot, wind and speed will be
explained during the Check-In at the
base. For further details on the different
settings we recommend to read the
user guide Raymarine ST 70 Tridata or
contact the manufacturer.
5.2 Chart plotter outside
The chart plotter is located at the
cockpit table. The manual can be
viewed Raymarine C 90 W
Note: By pushing different
combinations on the display you
may enter the set up and change
7.1 Gangway
(with pin connection)
The gangway is stored along the side of the boat.
Attached to the stanchions are two stainless steel
handles which are used to store the gangway.
During insertion of the gangway, always ensure
that the connecting pin is in the hole of the
provided locks.
6.1 anchor locker +
We recommend dropping the anchor manually. This is due the fact that while driving the boat
backwards the speed of the boat is greater than the speed with which the chain is automatically
dropped down.
Always attach the locker door with a rope to the reeling to prevent injuries.
Be cautious when dropping and lifting the anchor and make sure it does not hit the boat.
After you have anchored we advise to relieve the power from the chain acting on the windlass by
attaching a rope to the chain and fixing the rope to a nearby cleat.
While lifting up the anchor you have to ensure that the chain is not hitting the hull. Further it is
important that the windlass is NOT pulling the boat but the boat is moving towards the direction of
the chain. Therefore you can gently use forward throttle to relieve the windlass a little bit.
You must never touch the chain without gloves and always wear boat shoes while working with the
anchor. The length of the chain is labeled every 10 meters. The color code is written on the inside
of the anchor locker door
7.2 shower outside
All boats have a shower outside in the cockpit
or at the back of the boat. Please always be
careful when pulling out the water hose for
7.3 + 7.4 Outboard + Dinghy
You must only start the outboard engine
while in the water! Never start the engine
out of the water because this way there is
no cooling and therefor engine damage can
You must never pull the dinghy behind the
boat. This will cause the plastic parts to rip
and will damage the dinghy. After use of the
dinghy you must store it on deck again.
Damages to the dinghy are not being
covered by insurance but must be paid by
the client themselves.
8.1 Bilge / Bilge
The automatic bilge pump is located at the deepest
spot on the boat. Usually this is in the saloon under
the wooden floor.
The manual bilge pump is located outside in the
cockpit close to the steering wheel.
9.1 safety equipment
Life jackets for every crew member are supplied during the handover of the yacht. Make sure you are
familiar with the use of the life jackets before you start your boat trip.
At Check-Out we ask you to leave all life jackets inside the saloon or cabins. This way our Team can easily
check the inventory. The life raft is stored in the port side compartment in the cockpit.
If you have any damage during your trip which need to be fixed by 3rd party providers
you need to inform the base in advance. Without informing the base no costs for repair
will be covered!
The biggest energy consumption results from the fridge. You can control the
consumption with the temperature regulator inside the fridge.
When entering the Turgutreis D-Marin (G-jetty) we recommend driving the boat
backwards because there is limited space to manoeuver the boat once you are inside.
Before you can visit Greek territory you have to check with the base and get permission.
Entering Greek islands with the boat is only possible if you have cleared out first.
